Lots to update

Hi everyone, sorry it's been so long, I was away from home for a while and it's pretty hard to get back into the groove after so long! ( should know!) Where to start? Well, if you hadn't already figured out the previous post (and I'm sure you did), I'm pregnant, due on/around August 11th. I hate due dates though, so none of you better start asking those all too annoying questions like, "Are you still pregnant!?" and "You haven't had that baby yet!?" That's a good way to get deleted from my e-mail list for good! Things are going pretty well...I think. I mean, I can't see the baby but I feel tired and kinda sick already but that'll pass, and I think I've probably already gained weight but oh well. I'm not freaking out...just going to have to break out the maternity jeans a little earlier this time.
Fun with daddy before our trip!
Johnny and I took a trip to my parents house Dec. 2-11th. We were supposed to fly home on the 7th, but my parents blessed our family tremendously by buying us a minivan! I absolutely love my new (to me) car and it's great not to have to move the carseat all the time! It is a "champagne" colored Honda Odyssey that fits 7 people, so we're pretty well set for a while, hehe!

We had a wonderful visit at their house and spent lots of time hanging out, sewing, playing, visiting family and friends, eating good food, and shopping of course! John's favorite part of the trip was riding on the motorcycle with Grandpa Cliff (my dad). We all thought he would be terrified since it's so loud, but to our surprise, he was grinning ear to ear when they rode back down the driveway after the first run. John couldn't get enough and was pretty upset when motorcycle time was over, but there will be plenty more of that in the future (Grandpa will make sure of it!). Here's some videos and pictures of Johnny and Grandpa on the motorcycle.

Well we got home after a 2 day drive and were both wiped out. It was nice to see Isaac again and John is still very attached to daddy since we've been back. Every morning when he wakes up the first thing he says is "Daddy? Daddy?" and he waits for Isaac to go get him up. It's pretty cute and we realized was can't go on too many long trips without daddy again. He's too missable!

Lately Isaac has also decided to switch gears and try getting into a new/old career of firefighting. He has always desired to get back into firefighting or possibly police work and decided now would be the best time in our lives to get things going in that direction. He has already begun to study for tests coming up in January and April, and just decided to get a night job as a security guard, during which he might be able to study a little as well. I'm so proud of my husband for being so determined and doing what he needs to do to switch gears. We know God is going to bless all his hard work in this transition!
